Top Performing Stocks in the PSE 2018

James Ryan Jonas

The first quarter of the year is over. Can you believe it? Three months have passed, and we’re now actually in the second quarter of 2018.

Without a doubt, the 1st Quarter 2018 has been one hell of a ride for stock investors.

The year actually began on a high note, with the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) notching all-time highs almost everyday. Do you remember the day when the PSEi surged to a brand new all-time high record of 9,078.37 points? That’s the highest level the PSEi has reached in its entire history and it happened earlier this year, in January 2018.

That now seems to be so far away, considering the index can barely hold the 8,000 support at present. In fact, the PSEi ended the 1st Quarter with a heartbreaking 7,979.83 points — a steep 1,000-point drop from the record high, equivalent to a 6.76% decline year-to-date.

Indeed, everything that goes up must come down. But not all stocks registered price losses. There were big winners as well, and one stock even rose a staggering 1,300% in just 3 months!

Check out below the PSE’s Biggest Winners and Losers during the 1st Quarter of 2018.
